Conventum - Le Bureau Central Des Utopies

Conventum were yet another amazing prog-folk band from the rich 70's Quebecois music scene. It is a shame that albums as good as this remain still so isolated!
On this second album Conventum were down to a quartet of violin, acoustic guitars, bass, percussion and a slew of stringed guitars, mandolins etc......The overall music is rich in color and highly creative thanks a lot to the use of violin and acoustic guitar. The bass player in this band (Jacques Laurin) is amazing! (so too are the others).
Their overall genre I suppose is complex chamber-folk music, or perhaps acoustic music with classical and avant-garde and jazz leanings.
This is a great headphone experience album to lay back and just listen will be transported into a very different world that only Conventum can do.

The album is comprised of vignettes written for a number of films and is mostly instrumental. I am very thankful that the Prog Quebec label remastered these treasured albums from the original masters and have made them available to the world to enjoy.
